Spider veins are small, miniscule veins that are found just beneath the surface of your skin. Although these small veins are linked to your larger venous system, they are not an important part of it. Spider veins are caused by bloated and dilated, small veins under the skin. When the force inside the vein increases enough to overcome normal resistance of the vein wall, spider veins appear. In women, the capacity of veins to resist increased pressure is reduced when the body's estrogen level drops. Spider vein removal can get rid of these unsightly veins for you.

Sclerotherapy for Spider Vein Removal

Typically, the sclerosing solution will be injected through a very fine needle directly into your spider vein. You may have some mild discomfort and cramping for about 1-2 minutes, especially if it is a larger vein that has been injected. The procedure normally lasts 15-30 minutes. It's best if you wear shorts during the procedure.

The number of veins injected in one treatment can vary, depending on the size and location of the veins, and your overall health.

Sclerotherapy is routinely performed in your doctor's office by a dermatologist or vascular medicine specialist who will also recommend that you do not participate in any aerobic activity for two days after the procedure.

Laser Spider Vein Removal

EVLT or endovenous laser treatment utilizes the advanced technology of lasers for the treatment of spider veins and deeper, reticular veins. This procedure can be performed relatively easily right in the cosmetic surgeon's office. Lasers are extremely safe and effective on leg veins, as well as veins visible on the face, neck, and chest. The treatments cause very few side effects and you can resume your regular activities immediately following the procedure.

The number of treatments will be determined during your consultation and depends on the size of the vein and your body's ability to heal. Treatment time lasts from 15 to 30 minutes. During the procedure, the laser's heat damages the vein walls and causes the body to induce a healing process. Once healed, the veins shrink and become less visible or in optimal results, disappear altogether.
